I've been using Barnes in my other rifles for probably five years.
The new Nosler LR Accudonds should be good too!
I would not be comfortable with the clamp on muzzle brakes on an LR rifle, especially a magnum.
For one thing you are going to have, if extremely minute, some change in the shape of the bore right at the critical point where the crown meets the lans and grooves by applying an uneven amount of force to the outer diameter of the barrel that could at least theoretically affect accuracy.
The other problem is that if not installed exactly correctly they do have a tendency to fly off.
I'd save my money and just get a Snowy Mountan Rifles Muzzle brake and get it installed when you can afford it.
